Kamala Harris’ Supporters Come To Her Defense After She Was Accused Of Mocking Disabled People

Kamala Harris‘ supporters are coming to her defense after her critics accused her of degrading disabled people. The controversy started when the vice president delivered a speech at a roundtable discussion with disability rights activists on Tuesday, MSNBC reports.

Harris tried to accommodate the disabled people in the room, stating her pronouns when she introduced herself and giving a visual description of what she was wearing.

“I am Kamala Harris, my pronouns are she and her, and I am a woman sitting at the table wearing a blue suit,” she said.

Harris was later met with backlash from critics such as Sen. Ted Cruz, who viewed her gesture as a mockery.
